        I did a witcher contract for this npc in velen and I had to kill the grave hag "I think that was her name" and I went to go kill her but I didn't realise she was so high level so I run away to the village where I got the contract and she followed me all the way there and killed everyone, even the npc who give me that contract. I've killed her now but I can't hand the contract in, is this going to get patched or am I the only one?
